Norbi Demeter roundup for April 27, 2008

Yes, that’s right, Norbi Demeter (one pic borderline NSFW) gets a roundup post the first time he’s featured here. ;-)

Norbi is a LEGO builder from Romania who just recently started posting his creations to Flickr. It’s not often someone demonstrates such strong skills from the very first photo posted online, but Norbi clearly has talent.

First up, here’s Norbi’s big blue “Alien thingamagig”:

Next, a robot takes a walk in the park:

Finally, a Fuchikoma from Ghost in the Shell:

Can’t wait to see what Norbi will show the world next.

The Contortion

This is my first surrealist piece of the year and it marks the contortion of my mind for the past year and going.

The bulk of the work is composed of four interweaving strands built from corner plates and supported at several critical points.

Kyle Katarn’s Moldy Crow by RogueBantha

One of the things that got me into Star Wars back in the 90’s was the PC game Dark Forces (released in 1995).

I wasted far too many hours late at night blowing stormtroopers away with the concussion rifle and avoiding thermal detonators thrown by three-eyed Grans (“Tink tink tink…BOOM!”). Ah, good times…

Tim’s latest is actually a lovely little Theta-class shuttle, shown here with Palpatine and a pair of clones:
